The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required
to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not
installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable
protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital
devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television
communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its
peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
• Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
• Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits
controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

10/100 PoE+ Ports
The ports provide PoE+ support for devices compliant with IEEE 802.3af, IEEE 802.3at, and ePoE and
also provide Cisco prestandard PoE support for Cisco IP Phones and Cisco Aironet Access Points.
The maximum switch power output is either 740 W or 370 W, depending on the switch model. Intelligent
power management allows flexible power allocation across all ports.
For switches with a 740 W power budget, you can budget the PoE and PoE+:
•
15.4 W of PoE output on all ports
•
30 W of PoE+ on 24 ports
For switches with a 370 W power budget, you can budget the PoE and PoE+:
•
15.4 W of PoE output on 24 ports
•
7.7 W of PoE output on 48 ports
•
30 W of PoE+ on 12 ports
•
Total power budget can be allocated among the ports
On a per-port basis, you control whether or not a port automatically provides power when an IP phone
or an access point is connected.
The 10/100 PoE ports use RJ-45 connectors with Ethernet pinouts. The maximum cable length is 328
feet (100 meters). The 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX traffic requires Category 5, Category 5e, or
Category 6 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable. The 10BASE-T traffic can use Category 3 or
Category 4 UTP cable.
Cisco intelligent power management capabilities include enhanced power negotiation, power
reservation, and per-port power policing. For information about configuring and monitoring PoE ports,
see the switch software configuration guide on Cisco.com.
For information about port connections and port specifications, see the “10/100 and 10/100/1000 PoE+
Port Connections” section on page 2-24 and Appendix B, “Connector and Cable Specifications.”
Note
The output of the PoE circuit has been evaluated as a Limited Power Source (LPS) per IEC 60950-1.

Management Ports
•
Ethernet management port
•
RJ-45 console port (EIA/TIA-232)
•
USB mini-Type B console port (5-pin connector)
You can connect the switch to a host such as a Windows workstation or a terminal server through the
Ethernet management port, the RJ-45 console port, or the USB console port (USB mini-Type B port).
The 10/100 Ethernet management port connection uses a standard RJ-45 crossover or straight-through
cable. The RJ-45 console port connection uses the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-9 female cable. The USB
console port connection uses a USB Type A to 5-pin mini-Type B cable. The USB console interface
speeds are the same as the RJ-45 console interface speeds.
If you use the USB console port, the Cisco Windows USB device driver must be installed on any PC
connected to the console port (for operation with Microsoft Windows).
Note
For information about downloading the Cisco USB device driver, see the “Installing the Cisco Microsoft
Windows USB Device Driver” section on page C-3.
With the Cisco Windows USB device driver, you can connect and disconnect the USB cable from the
console port without affecting Windows HyperTerminal operations. Mac OS X or Linux require no
special drivers.
The console output always goes to both the RJ-45 and the USB console connectors, but the console input
is active on only one of the console connectors at any one time. The USB console takes precedence over
the RJ-45 console. When a cable is connected into the USB console port, the RJ-45 console port becomes
inactive. Conversely, when the USB cable is disconnected from the USB console port, the RJ-45 port
becomes active.
Note
The 4-pin mini-Type B connectors resemble 5-pin mini-Type B connectors. They are not compatible.
Use only the 5-pin mini-Type B. See Figure 1-5.
USB Mini-Type B Port
253163
Figure 1-5
You can use the command-line interface (CLI) to configure an inactivity timeout which reactivates the
RJ-45 console if the USB console has been activated and no input activity has occurred on the USB
console for a specified time period.
After the USB console deactivates due to inactivity, you cannot use the CLI to reactivate it. Disconnect
and reconnect the USB cable to reactivate the USB console. For information on using the CLI to
configure the USB console interface, see the switch software guide.

USB Type A Port
The USB Type A interface provides access to external USB FLASH devices (also known as thumb drives
or USB keys).
The interface supports Cisco USB flash drives with capacities from 64 MB to 1 GB.
Cisco IOS software provides standard file system access to the flash device: read, write, erase, and copy,
as well as the ability to format the flash device with a FAT file system.
For more information about the switch management ports, see the switch software configuration guide
and the command reference on Cisco.com and the “Connector and Cable Specifications” section on
page B-1.
SFP and SFP+ Module Slots
The switch has either two or four 1-Gigabit SFP or two 10-Gigabit SFP+ module slots. The slots marked
SFP+ support both SFP and SFP+ modules. The SFP slots support only the SFP modules. Figure 1-6

Installation Guidelines
When determining where to install the switch, verify that these guidelines are met:
•
Clearance to the switch front and rear panel meets these conditions:
– Front-panel LEDs can be easily read.
– Access to ports is sufficient for unrestricted cabling.
– AC power cord can reach from the AC power outlet to the connector on the switch rear panel.
– Access to the rear of the rack is sufficient for connecting StackWise cables to stacked switches,
or connecting the optional Cisco Redundant Power Supply (RPS) 2300
•
Cabling is away from sources of electrical noise, such as radios, power lines, and fluorescent
lighting fixtures. Make sure the cabling is safely away from other devices that might damage the
cables.
•
Airflow around the switch and through the vents is unrestricted.
•
Temperature around the unit does not exceed 113°F (45°C). If the switch is installed in a closed or
multirack assembly, the temperature around it might be greater than normal room temperature.
Operating environment is within the ranges listed in Appendix A, “Technical Specifications.”
•
Humidity around the switch does not exceed 85 percent.
•
Altitude at the installation site is not greater than 10,000 feet.
•
For 10/100 and 10/100/1000 fixed ports, the cable length from a switch to a connected device cannot
exceed 328 feet (100 meters).
•
For cable lengths for SFP-module connections, see the “Cables and Adapters” section on page B-3.
•
Cooling mechanisms, such as fans and blowers in the switch, can draw dust and other particles
causing contaminant buildup inside the chassis, which can result in system malfunction. You must
install this equipment in an environment as free from dust and foreign conductive material (such as
metal flakes from construction activities) as is possible.
Box Contents
The switch getting started guide describes the box contents. If any item is missing or damaged, contact
your Cisco representative or reseller for support.
Tools and Equipment
Obtain these necessary tools and equipment:
•

Switch Installation
Planning a Switch Stack
Verifying Switch Operation
Before you install the switch in a rack, on a wall, or on a table or shelf, power on the switch and verify
that it passes POST.
To power on the switch, plug one end of the AC power cord into the switch AC power connector, and
plug the other end into an AC power outlet.
As the switch powers on, it begins the POST, a series of tests that runs automatically to ensure that the
switch functions properly. LEDs can blink during the test. POST lasts approximately 1 minute. When
the switch begins POST, the System, RPS, Status, Duplex, and Speed LEDs turn green. The System LED
blinks green, and the other LEDs remain solid green.
When the switch completes POST successfully, the System LED remains green. The RPS LED remains
green for some time and then reflects the switch operating status. The other LEDs turn off and then
reflect the switch operating status. If a switch fails POST, the System LED turns amber.
POST failures are usually fatal. Call Cisco technical support representative if your switch fails POST.
After a successful POST, unplug the power cord from the switch. Install the switch in a rack, on a wall,
on a table, or on a shelf as described in the “Installing the Switch” section on page 2-10.
If your configuration has an RPS, connect the switch and the RPS to different AC power sources. See
the Cisco RPS documentation for information.
Note
Warning
When you connect the RPS to the switch, put the RPS in standby mode. Set the RPS to active mode
during normal operation.
Attach only the following Cisco RPS model to the RPS receptacle: PWR-RPS2300 = Statement 370
Planning a Switch Stack
Note
This section applies only to the Catalyst 2960-S stacking-capable switches.
Stack Guidelines
•
Connect only Catalyst 2960-S switches in a switch stack. You cannot stack the Catalyst 2960-S with
other switches such as the Catalyst 2975, 3550, 3560, or 3750 switches.
•
Stack only up to four switches.
•
Install the FlexStack module and the FlexStack cable. You can order them from your Cisco sales
representative: C2960S-STACK=.
Note
•
The FlexStack module is hot-swappable and can be inserted while the switch is powered on.

Power-On Sequence for Switch Stacks
Consider these guidelines before you power on the switches in a stack:
•
The sequence in which the switches are first powered on might affect the switch that becomes the
stack master.
•
If you want a particular switch to be the stack master, power on that switch first. This switch
becomes the stack master and remains the stack master until a master re-election. After 2 minutes,
power on the other stack switches.
•
If you have no preference as to which switch becomes the stack master, power on all the switches in
the stack within a 1-minute timeframe. These switches participate in the stack master election.
Switches powered on after the 1-minute timeframe do not participate in the election.
•
Power off a switch before you add it to or remove it from an existing switch stack.
For conditions that can cause a stack master re-election or to manually elect the stack master, see the
“Managing Switch Stacks” chapter in the switch software configuration guide on Cisco.com.

Installing SFP and SFP+ Modules
Some switch models support SFP modules, SFP+ modules, or both. The SFP slots support only the SFP
modules. The slots marked SFP+ slots support both SFP and SFP+ modules.
See the “SFP and SFP+ Module Slots” section on page 1-8 and the switch release notes on Cisco.com
for the list of supported SFP modules. Use only Cisco SFP modules on the switch. Each Cisco module
has an internal serial EEPROM that is encoded with security information. This encoding provides a way
for Cisco to identify and validate that the module meets the requirements for the switch.
For information about installing, removing, cabling, and troubleshooting SFP modules, see the module
documentation that shipped with your device. For module cable specifications, see Appendix B,
“Connector and Cable Specifications.”

10/100 and 10/100/1000 PoE+ Port Connections
See the “10/100 PoE+ Ports” section on page 1-5 and the “10/100/1000 PoE+ Ports” section on page 1-5
for information on the cables and connectors.
The ports provide PoE support for devices compliant with IEEE 802.3af and also provide Cisco
prestandard PoE support for Cisco IP Phones and Cisco Aironet Access Points.
On a per-port basis, you can control whether or not a port automatically provides power when an
IP phone or an access point is connected.
To access an advanced PoE planning tool, use the Cisco Power Calculator available on Cisco.com at this
URL:
http://tools.cisco.com/cpc/launch.jsp
You can use this application to calculate the power supply requirements for a specific PoE configuration.
The results show output current, output power, and system heat dissipation.

10/100 and 10/100/1000 PoE+ Port Connections
Warning
Voltages that present a shock hazard may exist on Power over Ethernet (PoE) circuits if
interconnections are made using uninsulated exposed metal contacts, conductors, or terminals.
Avoid using such interconnection methods, unless the exposed metal parts are located within a
restricted access location and users and service people who are authorized within the restricted
access location are made aware of the hazard. A restricted access area can be accessed only through
the use of a special tool, lock and key or other means of security. Statement 1072
Caution
Category 5e and Category 6 cables can store high levels of static electricity. Always ground the cables
to a suitable and safe earth ground before connecting them to the switch or other devices.
Step 1
Connect one end of the cable (Table 2-1) to the switch PoE port.
Step 2
Connect the other end of the cable to an RJ-45 connector on the other device. The port LED turns on
when both devices have established link.
The port LED is amber while STP discovers the topology and searches for loops. This process takes
about 30 seconds, and then the port LED turns green. If the LED is off, the other device might not be
turned on, there might be a cable problem, or there might be a problem with the adapter in the other
device. See Chapter 3, “Troubleshooting,” for solutions to cabling problems.
Caution
Noncompliant cabling or powered devices can cause a PoE port fault. Use only standard-compliant
cabling to connect Cisco prestandard IP Phones and wireless access points or IEEE 802.3af-compliant
devices. You must remove any cable or device that causes a PoE fault.
Step 3
Reconfigure and reboot the connected device if needed.
Step 4
Repeat Steps 1 through 3 to connect each device.
Note
Many legacy powered devices, including older Cisco IP phones and access points that do not fully
support IEEE 802.3af, might not support PoE when connected to the switches by a crossover cable.
The autonegotiation and the auto-MDIX features are enabled by default on the switch.
With autonegotiation, the switch port configurations change to operate at the speed of the attached
device. If the attached device does not support autonegotiation, you can manually set the switch interface
speed and duplex parameters.
With auto-MDIX, the switch detects the required cable type for copper Ethernet connections and
configures the interface accordingly. If auto-MDIX is disabled, use Table 2-1 to select the correct cable.
See the “Cables and Adapters” section on page B-3 for pinout descriptions.

10/100 and 10/100/1000 Port Connections
The switch 10/100 and 10/100/1000 port configuration changes to operate at the speed of the attached
device. If the attached ports do not support autonegotiation, you can manually set the speed and duplex
parameters. Connecting devices that do not autonegotiate or that have the speed and duplex parameters
manually set can reduce performance or result in no linkage.
To maximize performance, choose one of these methods for configuring the Ethernet ports:
•
Let the ports autonegotiate both speed and duplex.
•
Set the interface speed and duplex parameters on both ends of the connection.
Use the guidelines in Table 2-1 to select the correct cable for connecting the switch 10/100 and
10/100/1000 ports to other devices. See the “Connector and Cable Specifications” section on page B-1
for cable-pinout descriptions.
Where to Go Next
To change the switch settings, you can use the switch default configuration or use any of the management
options described in the “Management Options” section.

Diagnosing Problems
The LEDs on the front panel provide troubleshooting information about the switch. They show POST
failures, port-connectivity problems, and overall switch performance. You can also get statistics from the
device manager, from the CLI, or from an SNMP workstation. See the software configuration guide, the
switch command reference guide on Cisco.com, or the documentation that came with your SNMP
application for details.
Switch POST Results
See the “Verifying Switch Operation” section on page 2-5 for information on POST.
Note
POST failures are usually fatal. Contact your Cisco technical support representative if your switch does
not pass POST.
Switch LEDs
If you have physical access to the switch, look at the port LEDs for troubleshooting information about
the switch. See the “LEDs” section on page 1-11 for a description of the LED colors and their meanings.

Troubleshooting
Diagnosing Problems
Switch Connections
Bad or Damaged Cable
Always examine the cable for marginal damage or failure. A cable might be just good enough to connect
at the physical layer, but it could corrupt packets as a result of subtle damage to the wiring or connectors.
You can identify this situation because the port has many packet errors or the port constantly flaps (loses
and regains link).
•
Examine or exchange the copper or fiber-optic cable with a known, good cable.
•
Look for broken or missing pins on cable connectors.
•
Rule out any bad patch panel connections or media convertors between the source and the
destination. If possible, bypass the patch panel, or eliminate faulty media convertors
(fiber-optic-to-copper).
•
Try the cable in another port or interface, if possible, to see if the problem follows the cable.
•
Remove and inspect the stack cable and stack port for bent pins or damaged connectors. If the cable
is bad, replace it with a known good cable.
Ethernet and Fiber-Optic Cables
Make sure that you have the correct cable for the connection
•
For Ethernet, use Category 3 copper cable for 10 Mb/s UTP connections. Use either Category 5,
Category 5e, or Category 6 UTP for 10/100 or 10/100/1000 Mb/s connections.
•
For fiber-optic cables, verify that you have the correct cable for the distance and port type. Make
sure that the connected device ports both match and use the same type encoding, optical frequency,
and fiber type.
•
For copper connections, determine if a crossover cable was used when a straight-through was
required or the reverse. Enable auto-MDIX on the switch, or replace the cable. See Table 2-1 for
recommended Ethernet cables.
Link Status
Verify that both sides have link. A single broken wire or a shutdown port can cause one side to show link
even though the other side does not have link.
A port LED that is on does not guarantee that the cable is fully functional. The cable might have
encountered physical stress that causes it to function at a marginal level. If the port LED does not turn on:
•
Connect the cable from the switch to a known good device.
•
Make sure that both ends of the cable are connected to the correct ports.
•
Verify that both devices have power.
•
Verify that you are using the correct cable type. See Appendix B, “Connector and Cable
Specifications” for information.
•
Look for loose connections. Sometimes a cable appears to be seated, but is not. Disconnect the cable
and then reconnect it.

Troubleshooting
Diagnosing Problems
10/100 or 10/100/1000 Port Connections
A port appears to malfunction:
•
Use the Mode button to show the status for all ports. See Table 1-8 and Table 1-9 for descriptions of
the LEDs and their meanings.
•
Use the show interfaces privileged EXEC command to see if the port is error-disabled, disabled, or
shutdown. Re-enable the port if necessary.
10/100 or 10/100/1000 PoE Port Connections
A powered device connected to PoE port does not receive power:
Caution
•
Use the Mode button to show the PoE status for all ports. See Table 1-8 and Table 1-9 for
descriptions of the LEDs and their meanings.
•
Use the show interfaces privileged EXEC command to see if the port is in error-disabled, disabled,
or shutdown. Re-enable the port if necessary.
•
Verify that the power supply installed in the switch meets the power requirements of your connected
devices. See the “10/100 PoE+ Ports” section on page 1-5 and the “10/100/1000 PoE+ Ports” section
on page 1-5.
•
Verify the cable type. Many legacy powered devices, including older Cisco IP phones and access
points that do not fully support IEEE 802.3af, might not support PoE when connected to the switch
by a crossover cable. Replace the crossover cable with a straight-through cable.
Noncompliant cabling or powered devices can cause a PoE port fault. Use only standard-compliant
cabling to connect Cisco prestandard IP Phones and wireless access points or IEEE 802.3af-compliant
devices. You must remove any cable or device that causes a PoE fault.
SFP and SFP+ Module
Use only Cisco SFP or SFP+ modules in the switch. Each Cisco module has an internal serial EEPROM
that is encoded with security information. This encoding provides a way for Cisco to identify and
validate that the module meets the requirements for the switch.
•
Inspect the SFP module. Exchange the suspect module with a known good module. Verify that the
module is supported on this platform. (The switch release notes on Cisco.com list the SFP modules
that the switch supports.)
•
Use the show interfaces privileged EXEC command to see if the port or module is error-disabled,
disabled, or shutdown. Re-enable the port if needed.
•
Make sure that all fiber-optic connections are properly cleaned and securely connected.
Interface Settings
Verify that the interface is not disabled or powered off. If an interface is manually shut down on either
side of the link, it does not come up until you re-enable the interface. Use the show interfaces privileged
EXEC command to see if the interface is error-disabled, disabled, or shutdown on either side of the
connection. If needed, re-enable the interface.

Troubleshooting
Diagnosing Problems
Ping End Device
Ping from the directly connected switch first, and then work your way back port by port, interface by
interface, trunk by trunk, until you find the source of the connectivity issue. Make sure that each switch
can identify the end device MAC address in its Content-Addressable Memory (CAM) table.
Spanning Tree Loops
STP loops can cause serious performance issues that look like port or interface problems.
A unidirectional link can cause loops. It occurs when the traffic sent by the switch is received by its
neighbor, but the traffic from the neighbor is not received by the switch. A broken fiber-optic cable, other
cabling problems, or a port issue could cause this one-way communication.
You can enable UniDirectional Link Detection (UDLD) on the switch to help identify unidirectional link
problems. For information about enabling UDLD on the switch, see the “Understanding UDLD” section
in the switch software configuration guide on Cisco.com.
Switch Performance
Speed, Duplex, and Autonegotiation
If the port statistics show a large amount of alignment errors, frame check sequence (FCS), or
late-collisions errors, this might mean a speed or duplex mismatch.
A common issue with speed and duplex occurs when duplex and speed settings are mismatched between
two switches, between a switch and a router, or between the switch and a workstation or server.
Mismatches can happen when manually setting the speed and duplex or from autonegotiation issues
between the two devices.
To maximize switch performance and to ensure a link, follow one of these guidelines when changing the
duplex or the speed settings.
•
Let both ports autonegotiate both speed and duplex.
•
Manually set the speed and duplex parameters for the interfaces on both ends of the connection.
•
If a remote device does not autonegotiate, use the same duplex settings on the two ports. The speed
parameter adjusts itself even if the connected port does not autonegotiate.
Autonegotiation and Network Interface Cards
Problems sometimes occur between the switch and third-party network interface cards (NICs). By
default, the switch ports and interfaces autonegotiate. Laptops or other devices are commonly set to
autonegotiate, yet sometimes autonegotiation issues occur.
To troubleshoot autonegotiation problems, try manually setting both sides of the connection. If this does
not solve the problem, there could be a problem with the firmware or software on your NIC. You can
resolve this by upgrading the NIC driver to the latest version.

Clearing the Switch IP Address and Configuration
Cabling Distance
If the port statistics show excessive FCS, late-collision, or alignment errors, verify that the cable distance
from the switch to the connected device meets the recommended guidelines. See the “Cables and
Adapters” section on page B-3.
Clearing the Switch IP Address and Configuration
If you have configured a new switch with a wrong IP address, or if all of the switch LEDs start blinking
when you are trying to enter Express Setup mode, you can clear the configured IP address. The switch
returns to the factory default settings.
Note
This procedure clears the IP address and all configuration information stored on the switch. Do not
follow this procedure unless you want to completely reconfigure the switch.
1.
Press and hold the Mode button (Figure 1-1 on page 1-2).
2.
The switch LEDs blink after about 2 seconds. If the switch is not configured, the LEDs above the
Mode button turn green. You can omit the next step.
3.
Continue holding down the Mode button. The LEDs stop blinking after 8 seconds, and then the
switch reboots.
You can now configure the switch by using Express Setup as described in the switch getting started
guide.
You can also configure the switch by using the CLI setup procedure described in the “Configuring the
Switch with the CLI-Based Setup Program” appendix.
Finding the Switch Serial Number
If you contact Cisco Technical Assistance, you need to know the switch serial number. Figure 3-1 and

1. Modal bandwidth applies only to multimode fiber.
2. A mode-field diameter/cladding diameter = 9 micrometers/125 micrometers.
3. A mode-conditioning patch cord is required. Using an ordinary patch cord with MMF, or 1000BASE-LX/LH SFP modules and a short link distance can
cause transceiver saturation, and an elevated bit error rate (BER). When using the LX/LH SFP module with 62.5-micron diameter MMF, you must also
install a mode-conditioning patch cord between the SFP module and the MMF cable on both the sending and receiving ends of the link. The
mode-conditioning patch cord is required for link distances greater than 984 feet (300 m).

Configuring the Switch with the CLI-Based
Setup Program
This appendix provides a CLI-based setup procedure for a Catalyst 2960-S standalone switch or a switch
stack. Before you turn on the switch power, review the safety warnings in Chapter 2, “Switch
Installation.”
Accessing the CLI Through Express Setup
You can access the CLI on an unconfigured switch. Set the switch in Express Setup mode and connect a
switch Ethernet port to an Ethernet port on your PC or workstation. Follow the steps described in the
getting started guide for turning on the switch and using Express Setup.
When the switch is in Express Setup mode, open a Telnet session to the switch by entering the IP address
10.0.0.1. Enter the setup user EXEC command. Enter the information described in the “IP Settings”
section on page C-6 and the “Completing the Setup Program” section on page C-6.
After you have entered the configuration information for the switch, save it to flash memory by using
the write memory privileged EXEC command.
Note
In Express Setup mode, the IP address 10.0.0.1 remains active on the switch until you enter the write
memory command. You lose the Telnet connection after entering the write memory command.
For information about using the CLI, see the switch command reference for this release.
Accessing the CLI Through the Console Port
You can access the CLI on a configured or unconfigured switch by connecting the RJ-45 console port or
USB console port of the switch to your PC or workstation and accessing the switch through a terminal
emulation program.
Note
If you have stacked your switches, connect to the console port of one of the switches in the stack. You
can initially configure the entire stack from any member switch.

Appendix C
Configuring the Switch with the CLI-Based Setup Program
Entering the Initial Configuration Information
Entering the Initial Configuration Information
To set up the switch, you need to complete the setup program, which runs automatically after the switch
is powered on. You must assign an IP address and other configuration information necessary for the
switch to communicate with the local routers and the Internet. This information is also needed to use the
device manager or Cisco Network Assistant to configure and manage the switch.
IP Settings
Obtain this information from your network administrator before you start the setup program:
•
Switch IP address
•
Subnet mask (IP netmask)
•
Default gateway (router)
•
Enable secret password
•
Enable password
•
Telnet password
Completing the Setup Program
If your switches are stacked and there are multiple console connections to individual switches in the
stack, the initial setup dialog appears at the console where you first press Enter.
Step 1
Enter Yes at these two prompts.
Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]: yes
At any point you may enter a question mark '?' for help.
Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
Default settings are in square brackets '[]'.
Basic management setup configures only enough connectivity
for management of the system, extended setup will ask you
to configure each interface on the system.
Would you like to enter basic management setup? [yes/no]: yes
Step 2
Enter a host name for the switch, and press Return.
On a command switch, the host name is limited to 28 characters; on a member switch to 31 characters.
Do not use -n, where n is a number, as the last character in a host name for any switch.
Enter host name [Switch]: host_name
Step 3
Enter an enable secret password, and press Return.
The password can be from 1 to 25 alphanumeric characters, can start with a number, is case sensitive,
allows spaces, but ignores leading spaces. The secret password is encrypted, and the enable password is
in plain text.
Enter enable secret: secret_password

Entering the Initial Configuration Information
Step 4
Enter an enable password, and press Return.
Enter enable password: enable_password
Step 5
Enter a virtual terminal (Telnet) password, and press Return.
The password can be from 1 to 25 alphanumeric characters, is case sensitive, allows spaces, but ignores
leading spaces.
Enter virtual terminal password: terminal-password
Step 6
(Optional) Configure Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) by responding to the prompts. You
can also configure SNMP later through the CLI, the device manager, or the Network Assistant
application. To configure SNMP later, enter no.
Configure SNMP Network Management? [no]: no
Step 7
Enter the interface name (physical interface or VLAN name) of the connection to the management
network, and press Return. For this release, always use vlan1 as that interface.
Enter interface name used to connect to the
management network from the above interface summary: vlan1
Step 8
Configure the interface by entering the switch IP address and subnet mask and pressing Return. The IP
address and subnet masks shown are examples.
Configuring interface vlan1:
Configure IP on this interface? [yes]: yes
IP address for this interface: 10.4.120.106
Subnet mask for this interface [255.0.0.0]: 255.0.0.0
Step 9
Enter Y to configure the switch as the cluster command switch. Enter N to configure it as a member
switch or as a standalone switch.
If you enter N, the switch appears as a candidate switch in the Network Assistant GUI. You can configure
the switch as a command switch later through the CLI, the device manager, or the Network Assistant
application. To configure it later, enter no.
Would you like to enable as a cluster command switch? [yes/no]: no
You have now completed the initial configuration of the switch and the switch. This is an example of the
configuration output that appears:
The following configuration command script was created:
hostname switch1
enable secret 5 $1$Ulq8$DlA/OiaEbl90WcBPd9cOn1
enable password enable_password
line vty 0 15
password terminal-password
no snmp-server

Step 10
These choices appear:
[0] Go to the IOS command prompt without saving this config.
[1] Return back to the setup without saving this config.
[2] Save this configuration to nvram and exit.
Choose (2) to save the configuration to NVRAM to use it the next time the switch reboots.
Enter your selection [2]:2
Make your selection, and press Return.
The switch now runs this default configuration. If you want to change this configuration or perform other
management tasks, see the “Management Options” section on page 1-20.
